Western Americans cope with life running dry

This is what it looks like if you're standing on top of the dam. I can sail up in the canyon and to some buoy markers that you can't really see behind the water intake towers here. This picture was taken in July by MSN, but the water level hasn't really changed much.

Years ago, sometime in the 1980's I remember when water was going over the spill ways. Which means the water was up to the top of the 'bath-tub ring' shown here. And that was before 'global warming' as we know it.

it`s that the lightning isn't distributed right.

When we visited the Hoover Dam in 2003 the water was at a similar level. It makes us wonder if we should reconsider our thought of moving west permanently some day because the well might just run dry out there.
